Bowling Green Reviews

Nice, small college town in Northwest Ohio. The neighborhoods are safe and clean, the schools are well above average, and the cost of living is affordable. There are plenty of local, family-owned restaurants that have been here for decades and are very popular amongst "townies." There is plenty of nightlife downtown on the weekends. The college gives the town some diversity. The biggest downside is the town's location: besides Perrysburg to the north, Bowling Green is surrounded by farms and open fields so the nearest city is 30+ minutes away (Toledo).
Bowling Green, Ohio is a beautiful city. It's not difficult to find something to do that interests oneself. From a cozy coffee shop to a craft store to a sports bar and so much more, there's always something new and exciting for both visitors and residents of this wonderful city. Everywhere you go there are friendly faces to remind you that sometimes all you need in life is to unwind and explore a little. A few minor changes I could see made would be more clear street signs indicating speed limits, as well as a few minor road repairs. Aside from that, I have no negative comments about the city of Bowling Green, and I'd recommend it to any and all.
Bowling Green, Ohio is the definition of quaint, little, humble, neighborly, boring town. Don't get me wrong about the latter part. The Town may be boring due to the lack of modern stores, malls, movie theaters, restaurants, and diversity, but it is a nice little town. A town where neighbors care for one another, where children play freely, and everyone knows the local business owners. The city is predominantly a college town, so of course the main street buzz is surrounded by the bar nightlife and typical Fraternities nd sororities. Looking past that, one can find an honest little town with people who care and seem to live under a bubble of security and day to day monotony. This is town where you retire or raise a family. This is not the two for a young adult or someone with big dreams.
I was raised in BG and I have watched it grow over the past 23 years. One of the best things about this city is the safety, which is incredible. Though there is not much to do in the town if you do not like bars or college parties, take a quick drive up to Perrysburg or down to Findlay. Also, when something does happen in BG, the people get really excited for it and so it makes any event extra exciting (except the annual Tractor Pull which most people in BG dread). In summary, if you get the chance to live here, take the opportunity. You will not regret living here. It is the best town you will find.
There are lots of street lights where I live and people are always out and about which is nice.
The city is nice especially around the university.
The town is safe and the police are quick to get in touch. They are always available and fast when you needed help. Whether the problem is small or big, they are always open to help you.
Bowling Green is a great place to live. It is a college town and there's a lot of fun stuff available for college students. It is also calm, peaceful, and safe neighborhood. You wouldn't be scared to walk around the streets during night. The people are also friendly and helpful.
As a college there is a certain level of stupid that comes out on the weekends. Mostly harmless drunk students with the occasional robbery or break in.
A small Ohio town with a mid-size University at its center Bowling Green is a quaint area with good shopping and unique restaurants. I loved living in Bowling Green and would happily do so again. It has all the amenities of city living with the comforts of the rural atmosphere.
I have noticed I get more BG Alerts on crime than I used to.
The area is certainly better than the Toledo area, which I am from. However I do know that outside of college life, the area is not a good or bad one.
This place is great but the price seems a little too much considering the bug problems, icy parking lot, and the mailbox is rather far away from the building.
The only reason I live in this town is because I attend BGSU. Otherwise, this would be my absolute last choice place to live. There aren't a lot of things to do, and the town is not very active in planning events.
The construction causes a lot of issues.
I'd prefer to live in the southern part of the state.
The winter weather is rough. It is frequently bitterly cold and windy. Snow storms are a frequent problem during the winter. However, winter here is only from December to March or so. The weather is great after that!
The nightlife is a large part of the community. There is much to do around town after dark. If downtown doesn't have a restaurant someone is looking for, drive 15 minutes north and you'll find it.
If a person is looking for a job here, they are likely to find one that suits their needs.
There are very few local businesses here. Everything is corporate-owned. It is difficult to get everything I need without leaving town.
